Dr. Park received the M.S. and D.V.M. degrees from Seoul National University, Seoul, Korea, and the Ph.D. in Microbiology and Immunology from Washington State University. She was a post-doctoral trainee at the University of Idaho. She served as a Research Associate at the College of Veterinary Medicine at MSU beginning un 2011, and became a faculty member (Assistant Research Professor) in the Department of Basic Sciences at MSU-CVM in 2018.

Dr. Park’s expertise and research interest is mechanisms of pathogenesis of Staphylococcus aureus and developing vaccines to prevent infections caused by this bacterium. She is author of a publication that is ranked in the top 100 in Microbiology for 2017 (https://www.nature.com/collections/xnrkllythc). A paper on which she is co-author was selected by the Editors of the Journal of Bacteriologyas an “Article of Significance” (https://jb.asm.org/content/199/8/e00098-17).
